Pathology is one of the main subheadings in a standard article.
Immediately under the "Pathology" subheading a brief introduction to the relevant pathology of the condition should be included. This typically includes cell-of-origin information.
Below this, the following subheadings can be used as required.
Description of a condition's aetiology may very well be summarised by using a bulleted list.
However if there are known risk factors and/or associations of a disease, these should be located as subheadings in the Epidemiology section.
If the condition has substantial variation in distribution in the body, then the "location" subheading should be used. The subheading should not be used if no unexpected information is present. In other words, don't use the subheading for "pineocytomas" which occur only in the pineal region.
If classification systems exist please make these into separate articles with "classification" as a section attribute and link them from here, e.g. Achilles tendon tear classification.
A description of the gross pathology can be included here.
A description of the relevant histology can be included here.
If there are relevant immunohistochemical or immunocytological markers.
If there are relevant serological markers.
If there are specific features relating to genetics. This will often be alluded to in both the epidemiology and general pathology sections.
